book | Non-Fiction | 2022
US → Flatiron (Ed. Meghan Houser)

All The Women in My Brain is a collection of feminist, personal essays in which Betty explores the many types of women in her mind by looking back at the deranged patchwork of her own life. It’s about the complexity of the many people that we are, how they came to be and which parts of us show up when and where.

From the author: I am thirty-four year old woman living in Brooklyn. Aesthetically I’m your Windows 94 Jodie Comer, intellectually I’m a copy of Love’s Labour’s Lost in an on fire tree stump, emotionally I’m Ernest Hemingway’s cat asleep at a rave. I grew up in New York City and then farm porn Connecticut. In a selfless, original plot twist, I became an actor, and have been emoting for money in various probably unhealthy ways for almost 15 years now. For a decade my career was mostly sobbing and twirling for a small asleep theatre audience, and only the last few years has a modicum of success and public eye been a part of this weird soup. I did a million things that were career wise the equivalent of an ant sneezing at the Staples Center, but to save you a google that would risk you seeing images that probably have my Catholic ancestors on a permanent rotisserie gravespin- here are the highlights: Showtime’s Nurse Jackie (as confused skank doctor), Netflix’s GLOW (as unstable human-throwing mother with no pants), Universal Pictures' The Hunt (as baby dinosaur trapped inside Lara Croft), Paramount’s Tomorrow War (sobbing in cardigan) among many other times where my demons were filmed. I’ve been nominated for two Critics Choice Awards, three Emmys, and two SAG Ensemble Awards…all of which are huge honors because it’s a merit based system and only talented, deserving people are recognized. As a writer, I’ve been published in The New York Times, Glamour, Lenny Letter, The Hollywood Reporter, and Vanity Fair. I have been waiting to write this book my entire meaningless, stupid life.
